Events in the Bowling Green Kentucky area Fri. - Mon. August 16 - 20, 2012

This is such an exciting week for Bowling Green. 

The most exciting thing going on, I think, is Friday, when American Idol comes to town at Fountain Square Park.

NEW NEW - See photos from Friday's American Idol Small Town Bus Tour in Bowling Green Kentucky here.
